[2000-08-15-Toryumon] CIMA & Sumo Fuji & Judo Suwa vs Dragon Kid & Ryo Saito & Genki Horiguchi


Recommended Posts

As Toryumon grows in 2000, the new people that are being inserted mainly Genki and Saito here are adding a lot of depth that retains interest of the viewer. This was the best Saito has looked so far with some great strikes against SUWA. We got an abbreviated match but I appreciate the variety of matches Crazy Max has vs. up and comers here, vs their new rivals in M2K and vs the established stars like the Dragon Kid/Tiger Mask tag a few days earlier. ***1/4 (6.4)

Oh I was super high on this. Dragon Kid makes a good ragdoll and takes all kinds of team moves from Crazy Max and then the comeback is satisfying as a bunch of gang warfare moves go wrong for Crazy Max and allows the opportunity for a comeback. Genki and Dragon Kid mainly reel off a bunch of entertaining offense pushing closer to the finishing run but Genki gets powerbombed by Fuji to turn the tide once more. CIMA and Saito then go into an extended run of close nearfalls, giving Saito some really clever and credible near finishes without resorting to a bunch of moves to get there. CIMA brilliantly rolls through another rollup and hits the Iconoclasm for a good nearfall. They finally divide and conquer and get one more great false finish from Saito before Fuji puts him away for good. This was really really good.
